FOREWORD 

This Indian Standard was adopted by the Bureau of Indian Standards, after the draft finalized by the Fire 
Fighting Sectional Committee had been approved by the Civil Engineering Division Council 

All buildings depending upon the occupancy use and height are protected by fixed fire fighting installations as 
per the provisions laid down in SP 7 (Part 4). The fixed fire fighting installations are provided in multistoreyed 
building of height 15 metres or above and also other categories of buildings of lesser height but with special 
risks/basement, etc. Similarly, all factories/manufacturing industries also go for installation of fixed fire fighting 
system for protection of the property and life. The system may be in the form of wet riser, external hydrant or in 
the form of sprinkler/emulsifiers, etc, or all of them. The most important component in such a system is the fire 
pump. A carefully chosen fire pump of appropriate capacity and installed properly will form the back bone of 
such system. Even after installation, it is absolutely essential that the fire pumps are properly maintained and 
regularly tested so that they are in serviceable condition and come into operation instantly at the time of 
exergencies. 

The requirements in regard to the installation and maintenance of internal or external fire hydrants are covered 
in separate Indian Standards (see IS 3844 and IS 13039). 

The composition of the Committee responsible for formulation of this standard is given in Annex A. 

For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirment of this standard is complied with, the final value, 
observed or calculated, expressing the result of a test or analysis, shall be rounded off in accordance with 
IS 2 : 1960 'Rules for rounding off numerical values (revised)'. The number of significant places retained in the 
rounded off value should be the same as that of the specified value in this standard.

diesel engine or connected to any other alternate source 
of electric supply, 

3.9 Pump Panel 

Panel comprising starting, stopping and indicating 
devices of fire pumps. 

3.10 Pressure Switch 

A switch connected on delivery line of fire pump, or 
in the body of hydro-pneumatic tank at pre-set pressure 
level so designed to automatically start the fire pump 
or jockey pump, as the case may be, when the pressure 
in the system falls below the pre-set level. 

3.11 Circulation Relief Valve 

The circulation relief valve put in below the shut off 
pressure to provide circulation and thereby relieve the 
extra pressure in the pump. 

4 FIRE PUMPS AND PUMP HOUSE 

4.1 The pump house should be located preferably 
outside the building with a minimum clearance of 6 m 
from adjoining buildings. The pump house should 
have adequate natural ventilation with windows, fitted 
with expanded metal for protection. In order to 
facilitate proper installation and maintenance of fire 
fighting pumps, there should be provision of mild steel 
girder of appropriate x-section at suitable height in 
pump house for fixing chain pulley block. 

4.2 If the pump house has a diesel pump, the exhaust 
pipe of the diesel engine should be extended to outside 
the pump house and exhaust discharged at an 
appropriate height in the open air. 

4.3 The fioor of the pump house should be sloped to 
the farthest end to drain away any water leaking from 
glands, valves, etc. 

4.4 The pump house should have normal lighting, and 
also emergency lighting facility, either from a second 
source or from the generator. 

4.5 If the pump house is located inside the building, 
either on ground fioor or in the basement, it should be 
separated from the rest portion with a wall having 2 h 
fire rating and fire check door at its entrance having 
1 h fire rating. For pump house in basement, forced 
mechanical ventilation should be provided. Pump 
house in ground floor should be located on peripheiy 
of building with access directly from outside/open area. 
The pump house located in the basement should also 
have easy accessibility from outside preferably through 
ramp„ 



5 ARRANGEMENT OF PUMPS 

5.1 The layout plans of pumps installed and fire water 
lines should be displayed. The pump house should be 
of adequate dimension to house all the pumps with 
sucdon, delivery pipes, fittings and starter control panel, 
air vessel, etc, with adequate circulation area. Adequate 
head room clearance all around the pump for 
maintenance shall be made available. A minimum 
clearance of 1 m at front and back and 0.75 m on sides 
and between pumps should be provided for all major 
pumps exceeding 2 280 1/min capacity. For smaller 
pumps, including jockey pumps, the clearance required 
should be 0.75 m at front and back and 0.60 m at sides 
and between pumps. The head room clearance for all 
pump houses should be minimum 2.75 m. 

5.2 The pump control panel which should also be 
housed in the pump room but easily accessible, should 
be of adequate dimension to incorporate tripple pool 
and neutral (TPN) switch and high nipture capacity 
(HRC) switch both of adequate capacity, selector 
switch ammeter, voltmeter and phase indicating lights, 
single phase preventer, start and stop push buttons, 
auto-manual switch, auxiliary contractors for 
interlocking/sequence of operations and all necessary 
gauges, fittings required to complete the system (the 
busbar should be of copper of appropriate thickness). 
The panel should be floor mounted with proper 
grouting with the floor and be compartmentalized. The 
gauge thickness of panel should be 1.8 mm. 

5.3 Where diesel pump is provided, it should have a 
separate panel, also located in the same pump room 
or adjoining separate room. The panel should have its 
separate battery, with battery charging device, and 
auto-manual changeover arrangement. It should 
incorporate an interlocking device with the main pump 
panel so that both the electric pump and the diesel 
pump do not operate simultaneously. Adequate 
precaution should be taken to avoid spillage of diesel 
to avoid any fire exergency. 

5.4 Air vessel of adequate capacity should be installed 
in the pump house, with pressure switches 
incorporated on the delivery line. There should be two 
pressure switches — one with upper and lower limit 
for jockey pump and another one with only for lower 
pressure limit for the main pump. Stopping of main 
pumps should be only by manual push button which 
should be prominently indicated on the pump panel. 

5.5 Similar lower pressure limit switch should also be 
incorporated in the diesel pump to make the start 
automatically at pre-set drop in pressure. 

6 INSTALLATION OF FIRE PUMPS 

6.1 The capacity of the fire pump should be carefully 
chosen to meet the maximum requirement for the risk 



IS 15301 : 2003 



to be protected. The fire pumps have been divided into 
the following capacities: 

a) 450 1/min, 

b) 900 1/min, 

c) 2 280 1/min, 

d) 2 850 1/min, and 

e) 4 500 1/min and for special risks 6 700 1/min. 

Of the above, (a) and (b) are basically the pumps to be 
installed on the terrace to feed the Down Comer 
System. The other pumps are to be housed in the pump 
house. The pump house may be below the level of the 
water tank or constructed above the water tank 
depending upon the engineering conveniences. For fire 
fighting purpose, a pump house having the pumps 
below the water tank is always desirable, as this 
eliminates the necessity to have negative suction 
incorporating priming tank, foot-valve and other extra 
valves, etc. All pumps are required to be start on 
'Auto', when there is a drop of pressure in the mains. 
These are required to be pre-set on predetermined 
pressure suitable to particular risk. 

6.2 If the pump is electric driven, the capacity of the 
pump vis-a-vis its revolutions per minute must match 
with the electric motor being chosen for the same 
job. Electric motors required to feed the pump up to 
2 280 1/min are usually running at 2 900 rev/min and 
the pumps required to match the motors must also 
run at the same revolutions per minute. These pumps 
are known as Single Stage Pumps and the suction is 
at the end of the pump so that these are called End 
Suction Pumps. Small capacity pumps/jockey pumps 
are also avalaible/required to be used in multi-stage 
design. The speeds of these pumps are suitable for 
2 pole motor or 4 pole rnotor. 

6.3 The fire fighting pumps are almost invariably 
centrifugal type excepting in some typical cases where 
vertical turbine or submersible pumps are installed. 
After the capacity of the pump and motor has been 
carefully chosen, to match each other perfectly, 
installation of the pumps in the pump house should 
be done with utmost care. As has been said above, the 
pump house shall have adequate spaces to keep enough 
circulation area within the pump house for the pump 
operator in times of emergency or maintenance. The 
pump and the motors are always cases connected 
together by connecting couplers and they are mounted 
on a common baseplate which is supplied by the pump 
manufacturers along with the pump. The baseplate 
shall be of sufficient length and width to house the 
pump and the motor comfortably. 

6.4 In the first stage of the installation, pumps are to 
be mounted on a concrete foundation having minimum 
grade of reinforced concrete as Ml 5. The foundation 



shall be of adequate thickness and dimension 
depending upon the type of the pump which will 
be installed. The thickness of the foundation shall be 
50 mm minimum for small pumps up to 900 1/min 
capacity, 75 mm for pumps up to 2 280 1/min capacity 
and 100 him for bigger pumps up to 4 500 1/min. For 
extra ordinary big pumps, the thickness may go up to 
150 mm. The size of the foundation shall cover the 
full length and width of the pump and atleast 150 mm 
on the front and back of the pump and 75 mm on the 
sides as clearance. The foundation shall be designed 
as per IS 2974 (Part 3) and IS 2974 (Part 4). 

6.5 It is recommended to provide a jockey pump to 
take care of system losses. The capacity of the jockey 
pump shall neither be less than 3 percent (with a 
minimum of 1 80 1/min) nor more than 1 percent of 
the installed pumping capacity. 

6.6 Each pump shall be provided with a pressure gauge 
on the delivery side between the pump and the non- 
return valve and a manufacturer's plate indicating the 
delivery head, capacity and the number of revolutions 
per minute. 

6.7 Pumps (other than Jockey pumps) should be able 
to develop head of greater than 65 percent of rated 
head at capacity of 150 percent of rated capacity. The 
rated head for vertical turbine pumps will be rated 
bowl head. The shut off head of pumps (other than 
jockey) should not exceed 120 percent of rated head 
for horizontal pumps and 140 percent of rated bowl 
head of vertical turbine pumps. 

6.8 Each fire service pump shall be provided with an 
independent suction pipe without any sluice or cut-off 
valves therein, unless the pump is situated below the 
level of the water supply in which case sluice or cut-off 
valves is essential. Where the Net Positive Suction Head 
(NPSH) available at site is less than 0.5 m in excess of 
the actual value required at 1 50 percent of the duty point 
as per the manufacturer's curves or where the water 
supply has fibrous or equally objectionable matter in 
suspension or mud and/or sand liable to cause deposition 
in the installation, suction pipe(s) shall be installed in 
a jackwell (suction tank), fed through a pipe/pipes of 
appropriate dia from the main water supply. At the 
supply end of the major tank, where the main supply 
source is at a distance exceeding 20 m, a sluice or gate 
valve shall be provided. From fire water storage 
reservoir two separate connections are taken to suction 
header (from each compartment of fire water storage.) 

6.9 The diameter of the suction pipe shall be such that 
the rate of flow of water through it does not exceed 
1.5 m/s when the pump is delivering at its rated 
discharge. If, however, the pump is situated below the 
level of its water supply, the diameter of the suction 
pipe/header shall be based upon a rate of fiow of 2 m/s. 



IS 15301 : 2003 



6.10 When the pump is above the level of its water 
supply, there shall be a foot valve and a 'priming' 
arrangement, the latter consisting of a tank (having a 
capacity atleast three times that of the suction pipe 
including the pump casing from the pump to the foot 
valve), connected to the delivery side of the pump by 
a metal pipe having a minimum internal diameter of 
100 mm in the case of centrifugal pumps with a stop 
vaive and a non-return valve therein of the same size. 
A dependable independent filling arrangement and a 
level indicator shall be provided for the priming tank. 
The provision of a vacuum gauge for the suction pipe 
is recommended. Where circumstances permit, 
centrifugal pumps shall be fixed preferably below the 
level of the water supply. If the pump is automatic in 
action, it shall necessarily be so fixed. 

6.11 However, for light and ordinary hazard 
occupancies if the priming arrangements are such as 
to ensure that the suction pipe shall be automatically 
maintained full of water notwithstanding a serious 
leakage therefrom (the pump being automatically 
brought into action to replenish the priming tank 
should the latter be drawn upon at a greater rate than 
the rate at which it is fed from any other source), 
positive suction may not be insisted. In such cases, 
the capacity of the priming tank need not exceed 450 1 
and the diameter of the priming pipe need not exceed 
50 mm. Each pump shall be provided with an 
automatic by-pass connection and relief valve set below 
the shut off pressure. It shall provide circulation of 
sufficient water to prevent the pump from over heating 
when operating with closed delivery and no discharge. 
The circulation relief valve should discharge 
approximately 3-5 percent of the pump rating. 

Test Line — Each pump shall be provided with test 
line and shut off valve for individual testing of pumps 
without discharging the system. 

6.12 Pumps shall not be installed in the open. The 
pump room shall be so located as to be both easily 
accessible and where any falling masonry and the like 
from other buildings occasioned by fire or other cause, 
cannot damage the pump room. Normally, pump 
rooms shall be located 6 m away from all surrounding 
buildings and overhead structures. Where this is not 
feasible, they may be attached to a building provided 
a perfect seperation wall having 4 h fire rating is 
constructed between the pump room and the attached 
building, the roof of the pump room is of RCC 
construction atleast 100 mm thick and access to the 
pump room is from the outside. The pump rooms shall 
normally have brick/concrete walls and non- 
combustible roof with adequate lighting, ventilation 
and drainage arrangements. 

6.13 The sub-station(s) and/or D.G. House(s) 



supplying power to the fire pump(s) shall be of 
incombustible construction and shall be located atleast 
6 m away from all surrounding buildings. Where this 
is not feasible, all door and window openings of the 
surrounding buildings within 6 m of the sub-stadon(s) 
and/or D.G. House(s) shall be protected by single 
fireproof doors and 6 mm thick wired glasses in steel 
framework respectively. Likewise, roof eaves, if any 
of the surrounding buildings falling within 6 m of the 
sub-station(s) and/or D.G. House(s), shall be cut and 
wall raised as a parapet. The above provisions shall 
also apply when the sub-station(s) and D.G. House(s) 
are within 6 m of each other. 

Where the sub-station(s) and D.G. House(s) are 
attached to buildings, a four-hour rated wall shall be 
constructed to segregate the sub-station(s) and D.G, 
House(s). This shall be of RCC construction atleast 
200 mm thick or of masonry construction at least 
230 mm thick. 

6.14 Transformer cubicles inside the sub-stations shall 
be separated from H.T. and L.T. cubicles and from 
each other by walls of brick/stone/concrete blocks or 
355 mm thickness or of RCC of 200 mm thickness 
with door openings, if any, therein being protected by 
single fireproof doors having 2-hour fire resistance. 
The sub-station(s) and/or D.G. House(s) shall also be 
seperated from each other as above. Transformers 
installed outdoors, which are supplying power to fire 
pump(s) shall also be located atleast 6 m away from 
all surrounding buildings [including sub-station(s) 
and/or D.G. House(s)]. Where this is not feasible, all 
door and window openings of the building(s) 
[including sub-station(s) and/or D.G. House(s) within 
6 m of the transformers] shall be protected by single 
fireproof doors and 6 mm thick wired glasses in steel 
framework respectively. Likewise, roof eaves of the 
building(s) falling within 6 m of the transformers shall 
be cut and wall raised as a parapet. Blast walls of 
bricks/stone/concrete blocks of 355 mm thickness or 
of RCC of 200 mm thickness shall be constructed 
between transformers and these walls shall be extended 
horizontally 600 mm beyond the extremities of the 
transformers and vertically 600 mm above the highest 
point of the transformers. 

6.15 The electric supply to the pump set(s) shall be 
entirely independent of all other equipment in the 
premises, that is, even when the power through-out 
the entire premises is switched off, the supply of the 
pump shall continue to be available uninterrupted. 
This can be achieved by taking the connection for the 
pump(s) from the incoming side of the main L.T. 
breaker. However, in cases where two or more 
transformers and/or sources of supply are connected 
to a common busbar or where there is provision of a 



IS 15301 :2003 



bus coupler between the busbar sections, the 
connection may be taken through the busbars. 

6.16 Fire Extinguisher 

The pump room should be protected by appropriate 
type of extinguishers either CO^ or DCP. If the pumps 
are in basement, it is desirable to have the pumps 
protected by automatic sprinkler system. 

7 MAINTENANCE 

7.1 The fire pump shall be maintained regularly and 
properly. Therefore, it is absolutely essential that 
someone responsible person should be given the charge 
of ensuring that the fire pumps are properly 
maintained. 

7.2 The following maintenance schedule shall be 
maintained. 

7.2.1 After the fire fighting pump has been 
commissioned and the system has been taken over by 
testing it according to the performance parameters laid 
down for the fu'e pump, this should be recorded in a 
maintenance register, to be kept in the pump house. 
The initial test should show the following: 

Flow obtained at 7 kgf/cm^, 
Flow obtained at 4.5 kgf/cm^ (65 percent of 
7 kg), and 
c) Pressure gauge recording at 120 percent of 
7 kg. 

7.3 After this initial take over of the pump, the 
following shall be the routine maintenance schedule. 

7.3.1 Daily Check 

a) Testing of the Jockey Pump 

Test the jockey pump daily by opening the 
delivery valve/hose reel very slightly to allow 
the pressure to drop up to the pre-set level. 
Note the timing taken by the jockey pump to 
restore the pressure automatically by cut off 
switch. 

b) Main Pump 

The main pump shall be tested daily atleast 
for 5 min. Release the system pressure by 
opening the hydrant valve partially. The jockey 
pump will come in operation. Open the valve 
fully when further drop in pressure which will 



c) 



a) 
b) 



allow the main pump to start automatically. 
Close the delivery outlet and allow the pump 
to run for 5 min every morning. 

Check the pump glands, packings, etc, and 
replace the damaged gland for packing 
whenever found damaged or worn out. 



7.3.2 Weekly Check 

a) Check bearings grease cut once a week and 
lubricate as needed. 

b) Cleaning of starter contacts every week. 

c) Check the insulation resistance of pump 
motor circuit every week. 

d) Check the engine fuel oil tank and ensure 
that this is of appropriate grade and quality. 

e) Check the quantity of fuel oil in the tank. 
This should be sufficient for 4 h running 
without replenishment. Check the sludge and 
sediment trap as provided in the auxiliary 
equipment list. Check the inspection and 
cleaning hole, check the battery/batteries 
required for starting of the engine and ensure 
that these are in satisfactory condition. Also 
check the battery charging arrangement by 
trickier charger. 

For every cold areas, space heating is 
necessary to keep the engine in reasonably 
warm condition for immediate starting. If so, 
ensure that the room heating arrangement is 
working satisfactory. 

f) Starting diesel engine once every week and 
run it for 10 min. The starting should be 
tested by switching off the current and 
allowing system pressure to drop up to the 
pre-set level for diesel engine. Interlock 
arrangement with power supply should be 
restored. 

g) Check alignment of pump motors, nuts, bolts, 
couplings, coupling guard, etc, once every 
week after the pump has run for continuous 
15 min. 

7.3.3 Inspection shall be carried out as per the 
requirements given in IS 1710, IS 5120, IS 6070 and 
IS 9137. 

7,4 Manufacturers shall provide a list of fast moving 
spares.
